Musician John Mayer recently tried to up the ante with his girlfriend by serenading her from the bestselling erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey.  It didn't work out the way he planned.

Mayer appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon this week to promote his latest album Born and Raised and chatted about his currently lady love.

During the interview John told the talk show host about the serenade gone wrong,  "I was trying to impress her, and she had the book on her Kindle.  I said, 'I'm going to sing it to you.'  So I sang her one of the pages of Fifty Shades of Grey."

Her response?  Mayer said, "She fell to the ground...laughing."  Unfortunately the serenade was not captured on video -- our loss for sure.

John has an impressive list of ex-girlfriends: Jennifer Aniston, Taylor Swift and the woman he claims was "sexual napalm" ... Jessica Simpson.
